India Pale Ale style well suited for Hemingway-esque trips to the Upper Peninsula. American malts and enormous hop additions give this beer a crisp finish and incredible floral hop aroma.

This golden orange IPA has a 2" rockey white head which stands up. An impressive blend of aromatic hops, citrus overtones and hints of pine this is a beer that starts out strong and finishes pretty true to deliver a well balanced IPA. Very drinkable and a real palate teaser. One of the best blends of IPA out there and worthy for any red blooded Muskie fisherman.

Oooooohhh thatís so pretty. Dark copper, perfectly dark copper. Moderate head and nice bubbly look. So pretty. I think I smell pine through my allergies. Aggressive but balanced bitterness. Alittle salty but very nice. It feels somewhat fuller than normal. Not extremely carbonated but enough to give it some personality. This is a truly great beer.

Bright orange in color with big, thick, long-lasting head. I didnít get the strong aroma most mention- thought it was rather faint. Flavor was very citric and hoppy. Too much grapefruit.

Seriously good IPA. Bottle from Waldo Pizza, KC. Shared w/ Ben...opened his eyes it did. Hoppy, grassy, citrus aroma. Delicious hop and flowery flavor. Yum.

OldRaspy (292) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - DEC 29, 2006
Poured from a 12oz bottle a straw yellow with a generous white head. Aroma was of wonderful citrus and floral hops and a sweet malt lurking in the back. Flavor was just wonderful a nice citrus hop a touch of grapefruit peel and just a hint of malt.

Bottle, poured light amber orange, white head, scent of flowers, sweet malt, caramel, citrus, little pineapple, whiff of vanilla, taste of malt, pine needles, light grapefruit, lots of lacing on the glass, hop bite on the tongue, nice mouthfeel, when drinking this ale, I feel as though I am going up and down a roller coaster of hops, really is a wonderful drink, this ale never seems to dissappoint me, like a childís Christmas Morning in a glass.

Probably my favorite single IPA. Flowery, pineapple aroma. Similar flavors and a piney, clean aftertaste that lingers for minutes. Just terrific!

Pours a two finger white head that fades to a thin layer leaving a good lace. Cloudy amber color. Light carbonation and medium bodied. Hoppy nose. Starts balanced, sweetness in the background but hops dominate as this IPA is true to style. $1.89 for a 12oz bottle from Chalet Party Goshen, In.

12oz bottle-pours a thick foamy to rocky slightly off white head and hazy yellow/gold color. Aroma is lots of citrus hops-lemon zest. Taste is lots of light citrus hops-lemon zest, some bitterness, some malt(?) OK carbonation. Nice.

12 oz bottle into a Tulip glass. Thanks to asteele8 for this one! This one pours a beautiful hazed and clouded golden orange with a retentive white head that succombs to the rim of the glass. The aroma is exactly what I love out of a well crafted IPA: pines, pineapples, grapefruit citrus, a bit of honey, and bread. The flavor starts off sweet with a bit of malt and then gets progressively more IPA from there. Pine needles, lots of grapefruit citrus notes, a bit of oranges, and bitter hops continue to glow on the palate all the way through the finish. A tiny bit of yeast is present in the body. A very velvety feel in the mouth, this one is moderately carbonated, but SMOOTH at the same time. A nice hop presence lingers on the palate for a good moment after the sip. A seriously damn good IPA here folks!
